first hours. now more on the man himself. more on jorge mario bergoglio in the vatican. bergoglio's path to the papacy has taken more than 50 years. born in 1936 in buenos aires, he originally wanted to be a chemist, but in 1958, decided to join the priesthood. although francis, as the first pope from latin america, he has strong ties to europe. his father was an italian immigrant, and bergoglio completed his doctoral dissertation in germany. seen as an intellectual, he speaks four languages, spent much of his early career teaching literature, psychology and philosophy. and has published at least ten books, including one with pope john paul ii, who made him a cardinal in 2001. as archbishop of buenos aires, bergoglio opted to live a humble life, taking residence in an apartment, instead of the archbishop's palace afforded to him. and he commuted with the people. >> he renounced his chauffeur-driven limousine, and actually took the bus to work every day so the people of buenos aires knew that if they wanted a few minutes with their archbishop, they could simply hop on the bus with him and

, in vatican city, back home and around the world. in addition to choosing the next leader of the roman catholic church, there's a huge development affecting the lives of millions of americans. a court today blocking new york city's ban on supersized sugary soft drinks. the question tonight, is it a victory for freedom or a blow against your family's health? >>> also, the blade runner going nowhere fast. is he also deteriorating mentally? though his family denies it, there is surprising new word on how oscar pistorius may be handling the weight of his murder trial. >>> we begin, though, here in rome with an election like none other here in this world. how often can you say that about anything. this papal conclave has not happened under these circumstances in 598 years, taking place not after the death of his pope, but after his departure. catholics have come from all over the globe to drink in this moment, feel the buzz, and ultimately witness the outcome. what they cannot do, what no one can, including 5,600 tv and print reporters that have gathered here is actually see the process in
tonight. >> reporter: the winds of change are speeding up over the vatican. the conclave vote will determine which way they blow. electing a pope is a political as well as religious event. there are serious fault lines in the college of cardinals. some are traditionalists, many of them in the entrenched vatican establishment. and some are reformers, mostly non-italians who think the church's creaking bureaucracy and secretive ways are at the root of its problems. but as marco tossatti, who's been covering the vatican for 40 years says, the cardinals also split into sometimes surprising camps. the reformist standard bearer is italian cardinal anglo scola but -- >> scola is italian but certainly the italians will not vote for him. (laughs). >> reporter: scola's support actually comes from outside italy. but it doesn't come from the u.s. cardinals who are thought to support new york candidate timothy dolan-- at least to start. then they may switch to o'malley of boston. the traditionalist candidate is supported by the so-called diplomatic cardinals-- the italians based at the vat
the abuse scandal a in the church now makes the vatican less relevant to their lives. this is a bad time in the catholic church which is tonight without a sitting pope after the abdication of benedict. the cardinals gather on tuesday to select the new man. first they want to know what's in a secret 300-page report of mostly leaked documents. well, tonight richard engel reports on the swirl of intrigue and turmoil at the vatican that a lot of people may not be aware of. for the first time, we meet the man who helped expose it. >> reporter: the 109-acre vatican city is off limits to most italians. it is sovereign church territory, ringed by stone walls. some say it may be holding a huge secret as speculation continues about why the pope stepped down. the 85-year-old pope said he was too tired and too old to go on. but several vatican experts and investigative journalists say that's only part of the reason. their theory is the pope didn't have the strength to deal with power struggles and financial and sexual scandals inside the vatican, and that his resignation was an act of sacrifice to s
he will be a stranger. if he has worked in the vatican. he still serves on various commissions. he knows both the problems they face but also the structure, how it works and how it does not work, and that will give them ideas on how he is going to approach this. >> he was the man whom nearly became pope eight years ago. >> i think there is an element of that. timing is very important. what kind of a papacy this would have been. that is not a point. to have the second half coming through is stunning. >> yes, and in terms of those challenges, people say it is a positive strength he is not a vatican insiders. i wonder how easy it is to make changes if you are an outsider. >> he is not an outsider in that he has worked in the vatican and has served on various commissions. he knows a lot of the personnel involved, but you are right. he has been out of the vatican for a long time. i think that will give him strength. it gives him a vision. it gives him a particular scope of what has to be done. there is so much wait and see about all this, isn't there? >> we will leave it there. thank yo
crisis may soon be over. the whole world will be watching when a new pope is elected in the vatican soon. roughly one-quarter of europeans are catholic. they will follow the election not just out of interest and big ceremonies. it also gives believers hope that the catholic church could open up a little. many catholics feel the vatican has lost touch with the reality of their daily lives. if it is a question of gay marriage, fast-tracked divorce, or liberal abortion rights, the answer in rome has been no. at the same time, parliament's across europe, for example in spain, are voting in favor of such laws -- parliaments across europe. >> among the many faithful attending this catholic procession is jose antonio fernandez. he was a priest, but he sacrificed the status in order to marry. the church allowed him to continue working as a schoolteacher but later refused to renew his contract after a photo of him and his family appeared in the media. >> they exploited the situation to justify my dismissal. they said parents would be offended if they found out i was a married priest. that was a l
around the world. or than 100 the cardinals are locked inside the vatican, selecting a new pope. when the process is over, one of them will emerge as the successor to vote -- to pope benedict. new pontiff has not been chosen yet. >> they gathered as night fell and anticipation rose. in the age of the internet, the church still makes this its most important announcement by smoke signal. black, unmistakably, so, no pope yet. the conclaves have been held in the sistine chapel since 1492. this is how it begins. devotion, the holy spirit is implored to guide the choice they make. they heard a sermon. they are deeply divided and seek unity. looks down on them and reminds them that the pope is surmountable to god, not man. one by one, they took the oath to uphold the secrecy and rules of the conclave. -- of brazil,al now the world's largest catholic country. many believe he could be the first non-european pope since gregory ii in syria in the eighth century. they took their seats in strict order of seniority. each man knows is -- knows his place. there will be no open campaigning. no lobbyin
a day during the conclave the vatican aiming to avoid confusion, now using chemistry and technology in the cast iron stove that sends this emergency to the world. >> there is a cartridge put inside of it that contains the necessary schedule products. there is an electronic device that releases the cartridge. >> modern update to a century's old process. >> it was this time during the last conclave there was white smoke and we learned pope benedict xvi was elected. in the crowd, now, the anticipation is building. >> marci, thank you. the smoke signals are about technology and also about chemistry. katie marzullo has that part of the story including lighter moments during the wait. >> the news conference lasted two hours this morning with three priests, the vatican spokesman answering questions in multiple languages. when the topic towns to the chemical makeup of the smoke it got hazy hazy. >> we will take a huge risk in describing the chemicals because i only received the names in italian six minutes ago. i studied the bible not chemistry. >> he did the best he could. >> the black smo

a little later this morning. first, we head back over to lester at the vatican. >> you mentioned daylight saving time, erica. they don't start that here for another two weeks. it was a six-hour time difference when i came here. now it's a five-hour difference. we're in st. peter's square. any given day you might see cardinals walking back and forth. you wouldn't know their names. they are among the 115 who will gather here tomorrow to select the new pope and think about it, once they make that vote as early as tuesday afternoon the balcony could open and the new pope could emerges. someone you have never heard of before chances are, but will become the most famous person in the world. the cardinals met and talked a lot about the state of the church, its finances, its scandals. but likely not much about each other. >> but i imagine it's very difficult. but at the same time a lot of cardinals do know each other from other things they have worked on together. there are groups who know each other well. those groups can connect with other groups. >> but there's no vetting per se. what is your
chap chapel, where they took an oath. then, uttering extra ominous outside all, the vatican officials closed the doors and the cardinals got to work. all day, people waited in the rain for a mass for the chance to see, perhaps, a new pope. >> i think it's wonderful. i think benedict was a great pope and i think everyone is very excited to see who the next pope will be. so it's great anticipation wondering how it's going to be different and how much the same he will be. >> as the evening deepened, the crowds grew. all eyes on the stove where the papal ballots are burned that would signal white for a pope and black for not yet. >> if we got black smoke tonight, i would be stunned. on the heels of what we've already witnessed in the last month, there would be a certain poetic art to it. >> poetic, but perhaps not to be. even against a dim night sky, the answer, this time, was plain as day. >> joining me now is vatican spokesperson and our vatican analyst. it's good to have you with us. you were in the sistine chapel today. that must have been extraordinary. >> it was an incredible experi
. these are the scenes at the vatican right now where thousands of the faithful have gathered in a rain soaked and chilly st. peter's square, waiting for that puff of white smoke that will signal a new pontiff has been chosen. that smoke will come from the tiny chimney of the sistene chapel that you see on the right side of your screen. earlier today, black smoke rose from the building triggering sighs of disappointment from the crowd. the black smoke of course is a sign that the 115 cardinals who are voting have yet to reach a two-thirds majority, they need 77 to degree, to elect a new leader. but as the world waits and watches, we also caught a glimpse of a touching scene in the drenched square, a barefoot man in tattered clothing, look at this, kneeling, praying, and ignoring the raindrops falling around him. father jonathan morris is a roman catholic priest and fox news contributor. he joins us live from rome. father jon, that's what it's about, it's not about a name on a piece of paper or gets to wear the fancy dress and a lot of power. it's about someone who can literally bring someone to their kne
in the making. not only in vatican city but on wall street. >> that's exactly right. the day began with lots of suspension in both places and it ended in both places with definitive outcomes. on wall street, that outcome was another record high close for the dow, and we begin there tonight. now, the dow's win streak continues. nine in a row. the blue chip index hasn't done that in 16 years. in fact it hasn't had a down day this month. today the dow added 5 points, ending at 14,455, it's seventh straight record closing high. the nasdaq was up nearly 3 points and the s&p 500 inched 2 points higher. that leaves it less than 11 points from its all-time closing high. now, the markets got an early boost from strong retail sales last month, which rose 1.1%, nearly double what economists had expected. that's the biggest spending gain in five months. but as courtney reagan tells us, those top line numbers can be deceiving. >> the government's headline retail sales number came in nearly double what economists expected for february. the details reveal a less than rosy picture when it comes to discretio
kernels will be locked away at the vatican before they choose a new pontiff. -- one under the 15 cardinals will be locked away of the vatican. the mass is finished, and they are now moving on? >> it has finished. the cardinals now probably heading for lunch. we will see them around 14:45 gmt, they will leave the residence where they will be staying for the duration of the conclave and head to that apostolic palace, and then from then, around 1630 gmt, a person of cardinals away from the pauline chapel to the 16 jeff aware of the conclave itself will take place. -- to the sistine chapel where the conclave will take place. there will be an announcement that everyone will have to leave the sistine chapel and the voting will begin for the conclave itself. we are expecting one ballot later on this afternoon. most people expect it to be black smoke, no decision. you never know, but that is what is expected. the conclave will start in a few hours. of course, no one really knows who the next pope is going to be but over the past few weeks -- since the announcement will benedick xvi, some favorites
and what goes on out to their in the church of the world. >> with the cardinals of the vatican bureaucracy and insiders facing a sustained challenge to their power, the cardinal electors retreated from view, locked in until they have made their choice. .bc news after the vatican >> for the latest from rome, -- as a st. peter's square. an exciting day. >> very much a so. certainly, for the people in this square. at the crowds grew and grew, despite the rain. the mass that was held, before the beginning of the election of the pope. cardinals in their crimson robes standing side by side. it was just and the square right here. everyone waited with bated breath when the big screen turned into chimney tv. featured there on the screen to see whether the smoke would be black or white. yetnow the pope has not been chosen. most people said they would be back again tomorrow and this next day, until the new pope would be chosen. of course, a lot of discussion in the crowd as to who the next pope should be. joining me now is somebody who has some very strong opinions on the vatican. you are known as an
they took an oath. then, uttering extra on this outside all the vatican official closed the doors and the cardinals got to work. all day, people waited in the rain for the mass for the cardinals for a chance to see, perhaps, a new pope. >> i think it's wonderful. i think benedict was a great pope. everyone is excited to see who the next pope will be with great anticipati anticipation. how different and how much the same he will be. >> as the evening deepened, all eyes on the stove that would signal white smoke for a pope and black for not. >> if we got white smoke, i would be stunned. >> poetic perhaps. not to be. against a dim, night sky, the answer this time, was plain as day. joining me is vatican spokesperson, father tom, our vatican analyst, john allen. good to have you with us. you were in the sistine chapel today. >> it was an incredible experience. i went in and was allowed to be there for the beginning of the concave ritual. there were ten of us. it was a remarkable experience to be there, the sight, the people coming in, the cardinals, the music, watching the swearing of
the process in action. only a very few inside the vatican will be privy to any of it and only 115 men, 115 cardinal electors, will take part, shrouded in total secrecy. they will begin the process of choosing one single individual to become the voice of all that is holy to 1.2 billion people around the world. choosing one person to lead 1.2 billion people would be an awesome responsibility for any 115 men. for these men, for this election at this historic moment, the responsibility is quite literally sacred. it's already tuesday in vatican city, where later today, 115 cardinals from around the world will enter the sistine chapel charged with electing the next pope. after the first vote tuesday afternoon, all eyes in st. peter's will be focus order this newly installed chimney. a puff of white smoke signaling a new pope has been chosen. what will guide the cardinals in their decision? eight years ago, cardinal ratzinger was the front-runner to become pope. this time, there is no front-runner. there is deep division among the 115 cardinals who will be voting here starting tomorrow, divisions
team-building skills. anyone will tell you if they spent time at the vatican, it's not the friendliest place. there are a lot of people that are very ambitious, they have their own agenda, one they sometimes put ahead of the holy see. so he needs to build a team and say we're here to do this for the people, for the vatican, put aside your individual ambitions and let's go ahead. thirdly, he needs strong financial skills. it's odd, would you need a pope with an mba? maybe not an mba but certainly interest and acumen about financial matters. and lastly, the professor said he needs charismatic empathy. he has to tell his followers why they should follow him. why he has a path to a better life. >> harvard business school has a new ceo training program with michael porter, he might want to check that out. but in terms of looking at the vatican and what he's overseeing, we know it's a huge empire but what are the business units so to speak? >> from a financial stand point he does handle the day-to-day financial operations of the vatican and most importantly the vatican bank which has had its
not conduct the duties of the office anymore. a big moment. tracy: the vatican saying right now he probably will not attend the inaugural services. with that, we're going to send this to liz claman taking you through the last hour of tradi trading. stay with us. thank you very much. we may get the honor in this hour to announce just to has been named pope and what we will do throughout this hour, keep up this shot to route on our screen, what we call the big little. the big screen might have guessed that we are speaking with. a whole bunch of red business guests. we will keep this shot up. tracy and ashley. over 1 billion catholics. many others in the world might not be catholic just dying to hear who this brand new pope will be. riright now he is being fitted y the people taylor and his new papal garments. the issues, of course, doesn't product issues? prod amex issues. and that is a publicly traded company on the italian exchange. as we look at all of this, the big question will be that the cardinal will be asked, do you accept the election as supreme pontiff. once again says consented th
the vatican administration itself needed reform. we had the leak scandal, all of that. here's a cardinal who's coming from -- now pope coming from outside the vatican, of course, pope benedict came from many years as the ultimate vatican insider. do you think that's the hopeful or troubling buildup to a job that is going to be in large measure about wrestling control of what we've learned is a sprawling and dysfunctional bureaucracy? >> well, as obviously not having any firsthand knowledge of it, my sense of -- to go to everything we've been saying is -- and given his life experience in buenos aires where he did not avail himself of the perks of office suggest to me that this is a potentially quite revolutionary reformer. at least the clinical signs. the clinical clues would suggest that entrenchment privilege inertia, sclerosis would all be thingss that would be anathema to him given the way he lives and the way he's appeared in this very brief moment. so if i were a corrupt vatican bureaucrat i wouldn't be sleeping particularly easily tonight. just because -- i think being an outsider here
parts in events here, vatican events, most of the cardinals of the world come when new cardinals are created. so they do have opportunities over the years to to get to know one another. one of the things that makes this difference from last one two cardinals had ever been in a conclave before, one from the was joseph ratzinger, who became benedict xvi. this time 15 have been through the process. they do know one other better than last time which makes this process more complicated. not only do they know one another quite well but a larger group of guys who are veterans who feel they know the lay of the land and inclined to be active players in the process. >> let's listen in now. next cardinal angelo scola, from milan, archbishop of milan. let's listen to him. [ speaking latin ] >> a field where there is no favorite, i have been saying to you all week, john, and you followed, i'm lonely as a reporter on the story because it's so hard to get information. what are the hard facts that make angelo scola someone who must be considered at the top or near the top of the list who could b
, the sistine chapel is a room full of miracles. here at the vatican the term miracle is not taken lightly. right across from st. peter's is the congregation for the causes of saints. behind these huge doors investigators spent years poring over reports of miracles, trying to determine if they are truly miraculous. >> it has to be lasting, instantaneous, perfect and scientifically inexplicable. >> reporter: in catholic theology miracles are the proof of sainthood, acts of divine intervention, friendly help from above. >> the idea shows miracle shows you're definitively in heaven as a sign of god's favor. >> reporter: 78 of the 265 popes are saints. 16 more are halfway there, including blessed pope john paul. the vatican confirmed one miracle to him, curing a french nun afflicted with parkinson's disease. if the church can verify a second miracle he will be sainted. as they solemnly march into the sistine chapel, naming the saints, one by one, and asking for their prayers. not necessarily asking for miracles, but as they make this momentous decision, certainly looking for friendly help from
